WATCH: Sidney Crosby talks with media

Penguins captain practiced Friday, return to play still unknown

It was a welcomed sight for the Penguins and their fans. Sidney Crosby, on the ice, practicing with his teammates in Cranberry.

Crosby, who still working his way back from wrist surgery in September, skated before practice Friday, and then stuck around to participate in the entirety of the team's practice.

While Crosby did not take full line rushes with teammates — upholding Sullivan’s comments Thursday that he won’t play Saturday against Toronto — Crosby did join Pittsburgh’s No. 2 power play unit towards the end of practice.

Crosby has done some on-ice work this season with his teammates, but given that he is now past the minimal recovery time, his participation in a full practice is certainly a good sign.

He says that the wrist injury has been ailing him for seven years, after he took a slash from St. Louis Blues forward Ryan Reeves, who later became Crosby's teammate. Normally, according to the 34-year-old, thee injury heals in the offseason, but did not well enough this summer.<
